Now that you’re a Rivington resident, we know that you couldn’t be less of a Hoboken tourist. You’ve probably already figured out where the most mouth-watering restaurants are in your neighborhood, the coolest bars and the best things to do on the weekends.
However, that doesn’t mean that you have to completely abandon all tourist activities. During the next weekend when you find yourself with some free time on your hands, check out these Hoboken tourist attractions that are actually pretty neat.
Everyone who lives in New Jersey has seen an episode (or two) of Cake Boss, a reality show featuring Buddy Valastro’s family-owned business, Carlo’s Bakery at 95 Washington St. Now’s your chance to stop by the legendary bakery and pick up pastries, desserts and cakes. To taste them for yourself, visit the shop from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Friday and Saturday 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. or Sunday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Even if you’re not a commuter, you can hop on the ferry from 14th St. and get some of the best views of NYC from the water. The ferry travels from 14th St. to West 39th St. in Midtown Manhattan. Adult tickets are $9 each and child tickets – those from 6 to 11-years-old – are $6.
One of Hoboken’s many claims to fame is that the city is Frank Sinatra’s birthplace, which is located at 415 Monroe St. Unfortunately, the actual building no longer stands as it burned down, however you can join in with the tons of tourists who take part everyday by snapping a photo of the star that sits in front of the space.
